Who says you can’t have waffles for lunch?
I think waffles make an EXCELLENT lunch, especially when you make them more savory than sweet.
My waffles featured 1/2 a zucchini! Trust me, I couldn’t really "taste" the zucchini either — it’s one of those vegetable flavors that just blend into whatever you bake it in (kind of like Green Monster smoothies).
I used this mix from FlaxMatters.com:
I followed the package directions except I added 1 zucchini (grated), pepper, and a little extra mix (because the zucchini made it very moist). This made 2 servings (or 4 waffles).
Topped with Laughing Cow cheese:
Plus, a side salad:

What IS a Long Run, Anyway?
Yesterday’s discussion on recovering from long runs got me thinking….
What is a long run, anyway?
Here are some facts about my running habits:
- When I started to run, I couldn’t run more than 1/4 mile at a time.
- My first race was a 10K.
- My fastest race was a 23:46 5K.
- I’ve completed 14 races, including 2 half marathons.
- My longest race was a 15.4-mile trail run. It took me 2 hours and 56 minutes to finish that race (because it was a trail).
- My longest training run ever was 14.0 miles.
- I run about 20 miles a week.
Based on these experiences, I consider a LONG RUN to be anything over 6.0 miles (because that means I’m running for at least an hour). I consider a SHORT RUN to be anything less than 3.0 miles.
What do you consider a long run and a short run? Do you base it on distance or time?
